inspections for a risky workplace. while the number of inspectors has grown under the obama administration, osha just has 2400 inspectors for 8 million work sites. roughly one inspector per 60,000 worke workers. we talked last night about f fatalities from terrorism and gun deaths and we didn't talk about workplace. 3,000 americans died from terror attacks and during that same time. 335,000 americans died from the hands of a gun and over 60,000 workplace deaths. you would think on the day after one workplace fired up an entire town, the man that works for president obama, the day he went before a senate committee, after a factory explosion not inspected for almost 30 years, perez would be asked about it and you would be wrong. during the entire hearing no one saw it relevant to raise a peep about west or osha. they did find time to ask about a favorite right wing bugaboo. total questions about osha, zero, total questions about the new black party panther voter intimidation case, one. >> and i will talk about one who has covered workplace safety regulation more than any other journalist i k
work place. according to the "new york times," while the number of inspectors has grown under the obama administration, osha has 2400 responsible for overseeing 8 million work sites. one inspector per 160,000 workers. a ratio that has not changed since '70 and the federal budget to protect workers is half of those set aside for protecting fish and wildlife. we talked about fatalities from terrorism and gun deaths. there is a category we didn't mention, work place fatalities. in 2010, 3,000 americans died from terror attacks and 335,000 americans died at the hands of a gun during the same time and 60,000 work place deaths. you would think on the day after one work place blew up an entire town that tom perez, president obama's new nominee for labor secretary, the department that oversees osha and looks out for people in dangerous work places all over the country, the day he went before a senate committee you would think the day after an absolutely horrifying deadly work place explosion in a factory that had not been inspected in almost 30 years, that perez would be asked about it. and you
far and people's reaction in terms of -- duval patrick has been very clear and barack obama has been very clear about we're not going to say all boxers might go on to become -- right? that there is a distinction here between what these two people are alleged to have done and the fate they have. but i think the point there when you say they start out as normal people gives me this kind of almost awful feeling like you never know who is around the corner. what you're saying is it is more a psychological story than a sociological one. right? there is something happening internal and that framework which is a framework we use when we apply it to all kinds of other events that happen might also be applicable here. >> we haven't used it with regards to acts of terror committed by someone who professes to be muslim. i think that's the important part of this. whether it's a convert, whether we talk about this spectrum of radicalization, being a muslim doesn't make you more likely to commit an act of terror. that is simply false. as we look at these indications we have to be careful about the
weight of justice. >> president obama speaking earlier today after being briefed on the bomb blasts that killed three people near the finish line of the boston marathon and that injured well over 100 more. many of those injuriy iey ies g. kristen welker joins us now. what is the white house saying at this hour? what are you hearing from the top? >> reporter: good evening, rachel. senior administration officials tell me president obama will continue to be briefed on this situation throughout the evening. right now, the white house is approaching this as an act of terror. i can read you the latest statement that we have from a senior administration official, rachel. i believe we have a graphic of that as well. this is according to an official who says, "any event with multiple explosive devices as this appears to be is clearly an act of terror and will be approached as an act of terror. however, we don't yet know who carried out this attack and a thorough investigation will have to determine whether it was planned and carried out by a terrorist group, foreign or domestic." now, i can
, from president obama, to governor deval patrick, the message rightly has been one of resilience, inspired, i think, by the resilience of the people of boston. >> should we care whether it's terrorism in the sense of what the motivations were, whether they were ideological or political in some way, does that matter in terms how we, as a society, think about how to prevent it, how we should charge or punish the person who did it? >> it matters because we are a nation who has a particular relationship with violence, so, once something is defined as terrorism, it changes our relationship to how we think about who the perpetrator will be, depending on who is caught so that if the perpetrator is white and male, it will not be the kind of -- we will not think about it in terms of terrorism as if he were muslim. that's just the reality of how we think about terrorism. it becomes the -- >> we call timothy mcveigh a terrorist, don't we? >> we call timothy mcveigh a terrorist, but we do not deal with white men in america the way we've dealt with muslims post-9/11. there is a difference in
urging the obama administration to consider not mirandizing, not using the standard procedures of due process for someone in a criminal proceeding but to make them an enemy combatant or some other parallel legal regime. i imagine investigators are proceeding according to the textbook in this case, which is essentially due process, u.s. constitution, doj procedure, is that right? pete? okay. all right. we now have someone on the phone, we have someone who grew up with dzhokar tsarnaev. she asked to go by her first name only. she went to school from 6th to 12th grade with him. is that right? >> yes, we went to the school around the corner and had recess together. from freshman to my senior year in high school. >> can i ask you to turn the tv down in there, if that's all right? >> yeah, no problem. >> we have on the phone andrenea. friends with suspect number two. we believe he is pinned down in a boat in a backyard. >> hello? >> can you tell me what your sense is of dzhokar? >> he was outgoing. a popular kid. he honestly would never hurt a fly. this is really weird to see him in a situa
